Excuse me - that is hardly what I wrote. Further, I do not appreciate the personal attack.

I think a movie has to be in the public domain before it is free to distribute. This includes many films from as late as the 1980's and all US government films.

I merely think the Internet Archive has done a fairly poor job of confirming the public domain status of films they claim to be in the public domain.

jack2 if you do not care about legality and just want free access to new films (including ones still in the theater), go grab some filesharing software and download to your hearts content.

I did NOT make a personal attack( a slur for which you did not give details ). Quoting your own words"the archive should stop distributing all works cited as being in the public domain other than published prior to 1923..."From this ,I made the assumption regarding access to only ANCIENT FILMS. Further I regard your remarks about me as INSULTING e.g "jack if you do not care about legality and just want access to new films" We both have strong beliefs. I merely stated in my last post post, that I would like to know some bio details and if asked, I would also give info about myself
